In a "symbolic" way, I would like the council to consider some less pressing issues in the city:
1) Close to double digit tax increases for property owners and (I believe) double digit tax increases for business owners.
2) Dramatic rise in crime.
3) Enforcing code violations (shoddy looking homes, garbage out a week in advance).
4) The city's overall shoddy appearance (streets are rotten, garbage downtown, graffiti). I recently was in Boston and the place was immaculate.
5) Pay insurance premiums.
Hopefully on the next city council agenda we can get:
1) A plan to save the tree that is growing out of the window at the top of the O'Neil building.
